We’ve all probably participated in “Christmas in July” events or sales, I know I have multiple times over. It’s fun! Christmas is one of our family’s favorite holidays. Each of us has our own Christmas family tradition passed down from one generation to the next, but have you ever started a new holiday tradition? We have started a couple and our children have really enjoyed them.
Oh my gosh! I just found a new family tradition to share with my grandkids. Christmas Day usually finds me here in Florida and them in Ohio. ~~sad face~~ However, I do see them in early December. My first thoughts when I received The Christmas Web to review was to figure out which family to give it to. Then I opened the box and checked the website for more information. Once I realized exactly what it is I decided that I’m not giving it to anyone. It will be my new tradition with my grandkids, kind of to make up for not being there on Christmas Day. It will be so much fun!
Twenty years ago as Kerry Grinkmeyer and his wife geared up for the holiday season, the Mountain Brook couple felt that something was missing.
As they rushed around to get everything ready the holidays, they couldn’t help but think there was more to the season, Kerry said.
The couple’s 23-year-old son was due home from college, and their daughter was a senior at Mountain Brook High School and about to spend her last Christmas at home before embarking on her own college career.
“Christmas had become this six-week period of preparation for what ended up being a 15-minute event,” Kerry said. “The same excitement wasn’t there. It had become all about the work involved in getting to Christmas.”
